Florida mother skips hearing on charges of murdering two children

Published by Business Insider on Sun, 22 Mar 2015

SEATTLE (Reuters) - A Florida mother waived her right to attend a first court hearing on Sunday to face charges of murdering two of her young children and attempting to murder her five-month-old baby, an official at Brevard County Detention Center said.Jessica Lacey McCarty, 33, of Palm Bay was represented by a public defender, with a judge setting arraignment for April 21, the official said.It was unclear how she intended to plead.McCarty was ordered held without bond and remains under medical watch at Brevard County Detention Center, the official said.The medical examiner's office on Sunday will perform autopsies on McCarty's two older children, ages 7 and 6, to determine how they died.Police have not said how they believe the children were killed except to say they were not stabbed, sliced or shot.McCarty's five-month-old baby remains in critical condition in an Orlando hospital, officials said.Officers went to McCarty's home Friday after receiving two emergency calls, one from a woman who claimed to have killed her children, police said in a news release on Saturday.When police arrived, they found McCarty in front of the house, holding a butcher's knife in her hand and suffering from minor injuries.She ignored commands to drop the knife "which led the officers to deploy several 'less lethal' beanbag rounds to gain compliance," the release said.Inside the home, officers found three unresponsive children.A seven-year-old girl named Laci and her six-year-old brother Philip were pronounced dead at a nearby hospital, police said.(Reporting by Victoria Cavaliere; Editing by Stephen Powell)Join the conversation about this story
